Additional Information

Archive Documentary Spotlight is a bimonthly showcase for international documentaries that focus on contemporary social and political issues, explored in compelling cinematic terms. 'Our School' (2011): This award-winning documentary takes a wry but wistful look at the experience of three Roma children in rural Romania, caught up in political gamesmanship over whether and how to integrate public schools. Confronting racism, hypocrisy and insincerity, the children make compelling protagonists: warming at the prospect of joining with other Romanian children in school, but quick to point out disingenuity on the part of public “leaders.” In-Person: filmmaker Mona Nicoara
